with 11 comments

Germany won its first game in 2010 FIFA World Cup against Australia 4:0.

Inspired by what FAS.research did in visualizing the pass-network of soccer matches (there are a number of matches from the 2010 FIFA World Cup as well), here is the Germany pass-network against Australia.

Here are the number of passes completed by each German players:

  • Philipp LAHM – 71 pass(es)
  • Arne FRIEDRICH – 68 pass(es)
  • Per MERTESACKER – 64 pass(es)
  • Bastian SCHWEINSTEIGER – 54 pass(es)
  • Holger BADSTUBER – 47 pass(es)
  • Sami KHEDIRA – 41 pass(es)
  • Thomas MUELLER – 34 pass(es)
  • Manuel NEUER – 24 pass(es)
  • Mesut OEZIL – 24 pass(es)
  • Lukas PODOLSKI – 15 pass(es)
  • Miroslav KLOSE – 7 pass(es)
  • CACAU – 5 pass(es)
  • Mario GOMEZ – 1 pass(es)
  • Marko MARIN – 1 pass(es)

The defenders contributed 250 out of 456 passes (54.8%)!

And the following are the number of passes received by each player:

  • Arne FRIEDRICH – receive 63 pass(es)
  • Per MERTESACKER – receive 60 pass(es)
  • Bastian SCHWEINSTEIGER – receive 59 pass(es)
  • Philipp LAHM – receive 58 pass(es)
  • Thomas MUELLER – receive 42 pass(es)
  • Sami KHEDIRA – receive 40 pass(es)
  • Lukas PODOLSKI – receive 34 pass(es)
  • Holger BADSTUBER – receive 33 pass(es)
  • Mesut OEZIL – receive 31 pass(es)
  • Miroslav KLOSE – receive 14 pass(es)
  • Manuel NEUER – receive 12 pass(es)
  • CACAU – receive 10 pass(es)
  • Mario GOMEZ – receive 6 pass(es)
  • Marko MARIN – receive 4 pass(es)

Passes to defenders 45.9%, midfielders (Schweinsteiger, Khedira, Oezil and Gomez) 29.2%, forwards (Klose, Cacau, Podolski, Marin and Mueller) 22.3%.
